Diaper Rash help needed!!!

Hi Ladies,

My little man (19 mos) just got the most insane rash on his bottom. He used to get what I thought were bad rashes with disposables, but has been rash free since we started CDing (3 mos ago). But this week he got the mother of rashes. He screams and quivers when we change his diaper. His skin is almost blood red. And he can't handle bubble bath soap on it, so we've been doing baking soda baths.

I the past we have used A&D or Balmex. Then our Dr. told us to make a cocktail of Aquaphor, lotrimin and milk of magnesia...that used to work wonderfully. But when I called the Dr. yesterday, they told me to put Cortaid on twice a day for a week. I am only on day two of this treatment, but it is not making a difference (yet).

Do any mamas have any other remedies? My poor baby is so uncomfortable. We are leaving on vacation tomorrow and will be doing sposies during the days and CD at night. So I can't imagine that will help the situation!

Oh and I do 45 minutes of naked time for him everyday (since the rash started forming).

Thanks in advance,
Maile
